Definition: Gopher is a subject-based menu-driven guide to finding and retrieving directories of information on the Internet. It is a tool for finding a resource if you know what you want, but not where to find it.  Gopher systems are menu-based, and provide a user-friendly front end to the Information retrieval and the searches.  Gopher organizes all the information it finds from the many databases, online library catalogs, bulletin board systems and other resources available on the net into subject, geographic location, or type of service. When you run a Gopher Query a lot of things occur that are not apparent to you, like transferring files, changing directories, telneting, and querying servers all over the world.  Gopher finds whatever information you want, no matter where it is.
